A couple of weeks ago we reported on the Incase iPhone cover, with it’s distinctive organic style that looked as though it was carved from mahogany. At the time, I thought it was the best cover out there, as it was both aesthetically pleasing and practical.
However, it looks as the though the Incase cover has been usurped by Miniot, which goes one better in the au naturel stakes – the case actually is made from wood. The iWood by Miniot (from £45) comes in four different hardwood types, from oak to cherry, and you can even order an iPhone dock in the matching material.
The iWood, especially in the darker wood types, gives the iPhone a cool, anachronistic look, but I still think it’s for serious iPhone heads only, especially as it’s not exactly the most ecologically friendly way of protecting your device. I wouldn’t be surprised if I came across some sort of animal-skin based cover in the future. iSeal, anyone?
